I have gone to preferences/tools and unchecked it...but it still is on. I much prefer ctrl-spacebar method of zooming into a desired space.

Thanks in advance

Select the zoom tool - go to the options bar and uncheck Scrubby Zoom

What do you mean by its still ON.  Spacebar temporary Activate the Hand tool adding the Ctrl key temporary activates the Zoom tool.  There are many way you can zoom in Photoshop,  Short cuts can both zoom and change image windows size.  The mouse wheel can also be set to zoom but it does not also see to resize the image winnows.  Two finger touch can also zoom and resize image windows.  Some of the methods may look like an animated zoom but may actually be series  zoom steps that looks like zoom is being animated. Like when the Zoom tool is active and you drag  the Image it looks like zoom is being animated. Rather than a series if zoom steps that it is.

I want to be able to drag the mouse with the button down (creating a dotted line retangular area)...when I let go of the mouse button, the image zooms to that area. I used to be able to do this by dragging with the CTRL and spacebar depressed.

Has that feature been eliminated from Photoshop?

Zooming is quite flexible even with Scrubby Zoom checked Zoom is from the point you first click on. So I do not feel the a great difference between the two modes of zooming the area I want to work on is zoomed. I normally use the mouse wheel to zoom

I usually leave scrubby zoom on here JJ. It's good to have a choice though. I also like to use the scroll wheel as it matches the behaviour of other apps I use.

Thanks all...I needed to be reminded how to do that...I only need to set that option whenever there is a new version (which seems to revert back to scrubby zoom), so I tend to forget how.

I like it that way, because it's the same as my InDesign and Illustrator zoom methods, and I like them all to be the same -- muscle memory is an important factor in designing efficiency into user interfaces for different programs that work together.

(I don't even know if there is a scrubby setting in InDesign and Illustrator.)

Hi Steve,

Yes, there is!

  • In Illustrator, Animated Zoom (aka "Scrubby") is on by default and can be turned off in Preferences > Performance
  • In InDesign, Animated Zoom is also on by default and can be found in Preferences > GPU Performance
  • In both Illustrator and InDesign, though, I prefer making a selection and using keyboard shortcuts to zoom to the selection. Photoshop doesn't have that.
